Face recognition has become an important issue in many applications such as security systems, credit card verification and criminal identification. The recently proposed shape descriptor, Pyramid Histogram of Oriented Gradients (PHOG) features, counts occurrences of gradient orientation in localized portions of an image and has been proved as an efficient(More)
Antrodia camphorata is a unique medicinal mushroom found only in Taiwan. It has been used as a remedy for various diseases in folk medicine. Antrodia camphorata has been shown to exhibit antioxidative effects. Peroxiredoxins play important roles in antioxidation and cell signaling. A gene encoding an antioxidant enzyme, 1-cysteine peroxiredoxin (1-Cys Prx),(More)
Peroxiredoxins (Prxs) play important roles in antioxidation and cell signaling. A gene encoding a novel 2-Cys Prx was identified based on sequence homology in an expressed sequence tag database of the Antrodia camphorata, a medicinal mushroom found only in Taiwan. The 2-Cys Prx cDNA (940 bp) encodes a protein of 188 amino acid residues with calculated(More)
In this paper, we comprehensively evaluated the capability of imidazole-zinc reverse stain (ZN) in comparative proteomics. Three commonly used protein gel staining methods, including silver (SN), SYPRO Ruby (SR), and CB stain were investigated alongside for comparison purpose. A transparency scanning procedure, which may deliver more even and contrasting(More)
Both the aminopeptidase N (APN) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) are essential metallopeptidases in the development of tumor invasion and angiogenesis. A series of novel peptide-like derivatives were designed and synthesized as antitumor agents. Their structures were confirmed by IR, MS, and (1)H-NMR. These compounds exhibited potent inhibitory activities(More)
Rapid increase of the amount of image data necessitates the development of efficient tools for representing visual input. In this paper, we present an approach for automatically extracting the ROI (region of interest) and that can find objects using visual attention technique. Multiple image features such as intensity, color and orientation in multiple(More)
In the structure of the title compound, C(18)H(15)ClN(4)O(4)S, the dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 1.4 (3)°. The angle between the phenyl ring and thia-diazole ring is 5.8 (4)°. The conformations of the N-H and C=O bonds are anti with respect to each other. In the crystal structure, mol-ecules are linked by inter-molecular O-H⋯N, N-H⋯O and(More)
Purpose: Epigenetic regulation by promoter methylation plays a key role in tumorigenesis. Our goal was to investigate whether altered DNA methylation signatures associated with oncogenic signaling delineate biomarkers predictive of endometrial cancer recurrence. Experimental Design: Methyl-CpG-capture sequencing was used for global screening of aberrant DNA(More)
In the structure of the title compound, C(17)H(13)BrN(4)O(2)S, the dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 38.5 (1)°; the angle between the 4-bromo-benzene and thia-diazole rings is 1.3 (1)°. The conformations of the N-H and C=O bonds are anti with respect to each other. The structure displays inter-molecular N-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonding, with(More)
